Heat Pump Approval

Title: Heat Pump Approval
Policy No: 2014-2
Effective Date: January 20, 2014
Approval By Council Motion No.: 18

Intent:
The Heat Pump Approval policy of the Town of Annapolis Royal works to ensure the prompt and effective time to approve an application for heat pumps on a heritage building in the Town. It will provide the Planning Coordinator the ability to approve an application for heat pumps that will be installed on a heritage property without going to a Planning and Heritage Advisory Committee (PHAC) meeting, unless the Planning Coordinator feels the application is compromising the heritage value of the building.

Scope:
The Heat Pump Approval policy of the Town of Annapolis Royal applies to heritage buildings, and buildings adjacent to a heritage building.

Procedure and Implementation:

1. Application received
Once a Heritage Application and Development Permit Application has been received and complete, the Planning Coordinator will review the application to see where the heat pumps will be installed. If the heat pumps are to be installed on the sides or rear of the house, and the location is not compromising the heritage value of the building, the Planning Coordinator can approve the application. The approved application will then be sent to the Development Officer for final approval required to install the heat pumps.

If the heat pumps are to be installed in the front of the building or are deemed by the Planning Coordinator to be potentially compromising the heritage value, then the application will go to the next PHAC meeting for the Committee’s consideration and recommendation to Council.

2. Approved application
Once the application has been approved by the Planning Coordinator, PHAC, and/or Council, the approved application will then be sent to the Development Officer for the final approval required to install the heat pumps.

3. Approval Letter
A letter will be sent to the applicant with the Development Officer’s approval and any conditions that apply to the permit. Once this letter is received by the applicant, the installation may take place with a certified installer.
